Suspected interference with this wave buoy has resulted in several spurious wave height recordings. Please disregard these large wave spikes. Data may be temporarily turned off whilst this incident is being investigated.
|Hs||Height of significant wave (metres). This is the average height of the highest one third of the waves in the record.|
|Hmax||Maximum height of the waves (metres) in the record.|
|Tz||Average wave period. This is the average time (seconds) between all waves in the record. The more technical name for this quantity is the zero-crossing period.|
|Tp||The peak wave period (seconds) is the period at which the peak of the wave spectrum occurs.|
|Spectral density||Distribution of the variance of the surface elevation with wave period or frequency (proportional to the wave amplitude squared).|
